Aleut name recorded by Father Veniaminov (1846) as Aikhak meaning "travel" or "traveling." R. H. Geoghegan spells the word "aixag" and says it means "travel." Captain Tebenkov (1852, map 26) and Captain Lutke (1883 Alaska Coast Pilot, p. 320) published it as Ostrov Aektok. Admiral von Krusenstern spells the name Ouektock, an intermediate form in the name's evolution to its present spelling, used first by U.S. Bureau of Fisheries (USBF) in 1888. The Russians also called the island by a descriptive name: "Ostrov Goly" meaning "bare."
